There may be situations when you need to ensure your projects are encrypted or secured to prevent misuse of your projects. SOAPUI tool provides the project encryption feature to encrypt / secure your project using a secure project password.
Follow the steps discussed to encrypt your project in SOAPUI.
Step 1: Click on the Project name.
Step 2: In the properties pane of the project, there is an option Project Password to provide the password for project encryption.
Step 3: Now enter a password for the project in the Project Password field and press enter to confirm your password.
Step 4: Now your project appears with (E symbol) near the project name in the Navigator pane as shown in the image below.
Step 5: Click on File –> save all projects to save the changes made to the projects.
Now to check if the project is encrypted, follow the steps discussed below.
Step 1: Create a new workspace using the options, File –> New workspace.
Step 2: Now SOAPUI will prompt to enter a workspace name and save all the projects in the current workspace. Click yes to save all the projects.
Step 3: Now switch from the new workspace to the old workspace using the either of the options below,
File –> Switch workspace and select the workspace from the folder location
Click on File –> Recent –> Workspaces –> Choose Old workspace name from the dropdown menu.
Step 4: While switching the workspaces, SOAPUI prompts for the encrypted project available in the old workspace as shown below.
Step 5: Enter the valid password and click OK to open the encrypted projects.
Note: An encrypted project created in a workspace can be opened in that workspace without providing a password.
Thus projects can be encrypted in SOAPUI tool both in beta and Pro versions.
